It might take time for the Blue Jays lineup to get cranked
up so we expect a low-scoring game between the Indians and Blue Jays on
The Blue Jays host the Indians on Tuesday night with
knuckleballer R.A. Dickey making his debut for Toronto. Dickey only
made two actual Spring Training starts although he threw 102 pitches in
eight innings on Friday against Philadelphia’s minor leaguers. Dickey
is going against the Indians for the first time since 2010. He has had
success against Mark Reynolds (0-6), Drew Stubbs (1-9), and Nick Swisher
(2-12). Those are three of the new acquisitions Cleveland made in the
offseason. None of them exactly inspire too much confidence for an
offense that struggled at times last season.
Opposing Dickey is
Justin Masterson who is a talented pitcher that struggled to harness it
last season with the Tribe. He struck out 14 in his last two starts of
the Spring where he gave up 3 runs in 10 innings of work. Masterson
actually had two good outings against Toronto last year giving up 1 run
and seven hits in 15 innings striking out 15 while walking only two. JP
Arencibia (1-5), Rajai Davis (1-7), Edwin Encarnacion (2-10), Maicer
Izturis (2-12), Brett Lawrie (0-6) and Colby Rasmus (0-6) all have poor
numbers against the Cleveland ace. It might take time for the Blue Jays
lineup to get cranked up so we expect a low-scoring game between the
Indians and Blue Jays on Tuesday night.
